Diseases such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy, along with the tearing and detachment of retinas are some of the more typical issues that we face day in and day out here at The Retina Group of Washington, where eye health and vision as it relates to the back of your eye is our specialty.
It’s important to be aware of how important your retinas are. Without them, your eyes could not transform light into vivid images. And when they are working as they are supposed to, most people do not give much thought to their function. However, that does not mean that things are not going on outside of your awareness. For example, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy both form and progress through their early stages without any noticeable symptoms. If you did not get a yearly screening, the risk for vision loss and eye harm, possibly of a permanent nature, would be at a level that is unacceptable. Our retina doctor in Potomac is your source for both routine testing, done with the state-of-the-art in diagnostics; along with expert treatment and management of retinal disease. And in the case of a physical injury to your retina, where it becomes torn or detached from the rest of the eye, you will be reassured that our retina doctor in Potomac has the experience to perform surgery, backed by our vast experience in the field. We continue to be on the cutting-edge of developments in technology and techniques.
If you experience indications like floaters (spots in your field of vision), blurry vision, distorted vision, or loss of vision in general or in the center or sides of your visual field, it could be a sign of either advanced retinal disease or harm to your retina, so do not hesitate to come in and see our retina doctor in Potomac.
